Marvel Announces ‘Avengers: No More Bullying’ Comic, Bullies Get Vibranium Shields Upside The Head

Bully00

It was only last month that Marvel revealed a set of anti-bullying variant covers designed to get kids to stop being complete jerks to each other, but apparently, it seems that an image of Gamorra offering to space-murder a group of mean children wasn't enough to solve all the problems. As a result, Marvel has taken the next logical step: A full-length anti-bullying comic featuring the Avengers, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, all teaming up to try to put an end to bullying once and for all.

The 'Doctor Strange' casting has come full circle. After a series of stops and starts (we're looking at you, Joaquin Phoenix), Marvel has returned to one of the very first actors they had their eye on for their upcoming superhero movie: Benedict Cumberbatch. Deadline is reporting that the 'Sherlock' star is in "final negotiations" with Marvel to star in 'Doctor Strange' and, presumably, a number of other big 'Avengers' style crossover movies.

‘Don Heck: A Work Of Art’ Retrospective Shines New Light On The Silver Age Great

Untitled-1

Don Heck is something of an odd man out when it comes to comics history. He was one of the architects of the Marvel Universe, co-creating Iron Man, Hawkeye, and other famous characters; he was held in high esteem by his peers – yet he's rarely mentioned in the same breath as Romita, Ditko, Kirby, Buscema, Ayers, and other Silver Age greats. He was, for many years, the Avengers artist, but often goes unnoticed when fans make their lists of the definitive super-team pencillers. He defined the down-to-earth qualities of Marvel while his contemporaries were pushing toward the cosmos, rooting his characters in reality as others pushed the boundaries of possibility. And while that precise mix of magnificent and mundane was what truly defined Marvel, his contributions were nevertheless destined to be overshadowed by the flashier offerings that the rest of the bullpen provided.

The latter day appreciation of Heck's work continues with TwoMorrows' publication of Don Heck: A Work Of Art, is a handsome full-color hardcover recounting the artist's life story. The layout is clean and clear, the printing is up to TwoMorrows' usual high standards, and the selection of art is nothing short of superb – from published pages and panels, to roughs and sketches, to pieces shot directly from Heck's original art, it's all here, and all reproduced beautifully.

Gwen Stacy As Hero, Not Victim: Latour, Rodriguez & Renzi On ‘Spider-Gwen’ [Interview]

spider-gwen-hed

Gwen Stacy was meant to stay dead. Her death back in 1973 in Amazing Spider-Man #121, by Gerry Conway and Gil Kane, was a mark of maturation for the genre, a sign that superhero comics were ready to embrace more sophisticated storytelling. Her death became as defining to Spider-Man's story as that of his Uncle Ben. It could never be undone.

But there's no such thing as "never" in superhero fiction. Gwen Stacy is back -- sort of. The character's debut as another reality's Spider-Woman in Edge of Spider-Verse #2 by writer Jason Latour, artist Robbi Rodriguez, and colorist Rico Renzi was so well received that the character will spin off into her own ongoing series, Spider-Gwen -- created by the same team, and set in a world where Peter Parker is just as dead as Gwen Stacy is in the main Marvel Universe. ComicsAlliance spoke to Latour, Rodriguez, and Renzi, to find out more about their plans -- and their response to Spider-Gwen's new-found popularity.

The X-Men Episode Guide 5×11: Old Soldiers

The X-Men Episode Guide 5x11: Old Soldiers

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series.

This week, it's a flashback to World War II with Captain America, teaming up with Wolverine to fight gigantic Warhammer 40,000 miniatures! It's actually seriously rad.

Literally One Billion Things You Missed In The ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Trailer

Untitled-1

DID YOU GUYS SEE THAT TRAILER? We did. We saw it more than you. We saw it until our eyes blinked. We saw the heck out of that trailer. We love comic book super movies better than anyone! Who are you dressing as for Halloween? Ultron? LOSER. We're dressing up as a destroyed city or a screaming civilian running through the street, because we GET IT and you DON'T.

But you're cool too I guess, so we're going to tell you a few secrets about the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer. We paused every frame of that trailer (or there were gifs on Tumblr maybe) and now we know every hidden Easter egg, every clever surprise, every cameo that Marvel doesn't want you to see! (Unless they're hoping you'll go see the movie, in which case maybe this is all just marketing and we're playing their game? Holy cheese, I think I just stepped through the looking glass here. Look away you guys! IT'S A TRAP!)

Ultimate Rising Of Old Man Logan’s House Of Infinity: Marvel Teases More Recycled Events (And Throws A Curveball)

Marvel 2015 Teasers

Another week, another batch of Marvel promos for summer 2015 events with familiar titles: Infinity Gauntlet, House of M, Old Man Logan, Inumans: Attilan Rising. They joins a slew of other recycled titles including Armor Wars, Civil War, and Planet Hulk.

Then, today, things changed up a little. Marvel sent out an email for its newest summer 2015 event in the same format as it has been (one image with no text besides a title), but it doesn't have the title of an old series, though it does share a subtitle with a series of books that started about 12 years ago. It's called simply Ultimate Universe: The End.
